Authors: Killeen BM, Wolfson AB
Acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema (ACPE) has traditionally been treated pharmacologically, with a combination of nitrates, diuretics, morphine, and inotropes. Since the introduction of non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV), a method of providing mechanical ventilation that does not bypass the upper airway, this modality has been widely used as an important addition to the acute care of ACPE.
